Default What is the diameter of a corny keg?

Title says it all.

I'm trying to figure out how many kegs I could fit into a kegerator or keezer, and was wondering what the diameter of a cornelius keg is. I know the heighth is 25.5" (if I'm correct).

I tried searching but found nothing.

Thanks a lot.

It is about 8.5" in diameter and about 29" tall.

yeah, about 8.5" diameter, and you need a solid 28" of height for the keg plus the QD's and lines coming off them. That's for a true ball lock Cornelius type keg.

as I understand it, the Pin-lock Firestone kegs are a little over 9" in diameter, and slightly shorter (like 23", not counting the disconnects/lines).

IIRC, my pinlocks are 9.25" D x 22.5" tall. You'll need an extra inch for the disconnect.

I've been using this as I look to kegging in the future:

Edit: I figure about 5" for connections, but it's just a guess.
